Pendle Radicals Gather at Black Stone Edge… (via The Radical Echo)

Remembering the Chartists…

It has been a busy few months for our Pendle Radical volunteers.  Recently Bob Sproule and Barbara Sanders attended this years Blackstone Edge Gathering. You can find out more about that and how the attendees at the Gathering heard about Pendle Radicals below…

Bob Sproule:  The Blackstone Edge Gathering is a long standing event which celebrates Chartism, a political movement which flourished in Britain during the early to mid 19th Century. One of its aims was to create a better standard of living for working people, especially those that experienced both hard working and living conditions.

The event therefore pays tribute to individuals such as Ernest Jones who was a leader of the chartist movement in the 1840s.
